    DescriptionIn Europeanism the author attempts to identify and outline the political, economic, and social norms and values associated with Europe and Europeans. He argues that regardless of the doubts associated with the exercise of European integration and the work of the European Union, and regardless of residual identities with states and nations, Europeans have much in common. Opening chapters deal with the historical development of European ideas, and are followed by chapters addressing European attitudes toward the state (including a rejection of state-based nationalism, new ideas about patriotism and citizenship, and the importance of cosmopolitanism), the characteristics of politics and government in Europe (with an emphasis on communitarianism and the effects of the parliamentary system of government), European economic models (including the importance of welfarism and sustainable development), European social models, European attitudes towards values such as multiculturalism and secularism, and Europeanist views in regard to international relations (emphasizing civilian power and multiculturalism).

    Review quote
    deliberately provocative and enticingly concise... [McCormick] is the most articulate and politically informed of a new breed of "Euro-prophets" engaged in locating and promoting the principles underlying the European project. William Biebuyck, Journal of Contemporary European Studies a timely attempt to understand the uniqueness of the European project...Anyone willing to embark on the quest for a positive definition of 'Europeanism' will find McCormick's book fruitful reading. Alexander Strelkov, Journal of Common Market Studies This is an important contribution to the European integration literature specifically because of its comprehensive examination of almost all European values. The book addresses how these individual aspects and components come together to form a collective vision. Meltem Mutuler-Bac, West European Politics
